Arrival in Foz de Iguazu
Depending on where your flight originates in Brazil, it will probably take 2 hours or more to reach Foz do Iguazu. Between the months of September and March you’ll step out into a tropical heatwave, other months can be a bit chillier. After your arrival at the small airport, you’ll be greeted by one of our local representatives and transferred to your resort style hotel.
Foz do Iguazu - Brazilian Waterfalls
This morning you’ll be collected from your hotel by an English-speaking guide and head towards Iguazu National Park. As you walk along the trails you’ll see the waterfalls in front of you on the other side of the river. The raging water that dumps down from the falls is so immense that even 100m away you’ll still get soaked by the spray. If the sun is shining, you may see a rainbow appear.
Foz do Iguazu - Argentine waterfalls
After breakfast you’ll travel from Foz do Iguazu Argentina border. Your guide will collect your passport to take care of all of the formalities and within 5 minutes you’ll be in Argentina. You’ll take a small train from the Visitor’s Centre to the starting point of the trail along the top of the waterfalls before heading to the Devil’s Throat, the thundering noise of the falls is overwhelming.
After you’ve seen enough of the falls and had a bite to eat, you’ll head to where the jet boat safari will begin. Seeing the falls from the water up close is an overwhelming experience, but we recommend bringing a poncho or raincoat along with you or come prepared to get very wet. The jet boat captain will stop the boat at the best possible places to take photos.
Departure from Foz do Iguazu
Depending on the departure time of your flight, you’ll have some spare time before you’re picked up and taken to the airport for your onward flight.
